Valerie was an excellent guide and most accommodating, taking photographs of us at various sites on our full day tour of Mont Saint Michel, St Malo, and the special excursion to the Brittany American Cemetery in Saint James. It was helpful to have Valerie meet us at our hotel in Rennes. The tour was made more enjoyable by perfect autumn weather.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Charles and Nicky, Thanks a lot for this very kind review ! I wish you an excellent time in Great Britain and I am looking forward to seeing our pictures. I will certainly use them for my Tours by Locals profile.... Warm regards, Val

We are fortunate to have found Val Coupel and "Tours by Locals". Once Val's availability was confirmed we worked with her directly to personalize a tour of Mont St. Michel, the Brittney coast and St. Malo in our limited available time. We were delighted with Val's communication both before and during the tour. Throughout the day we benefited from Val's intimate knowledge of Brittney, her experience as a guide and her ability to explain the area's history as can only happen with a true professional.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Brooke ! This tour was a delight for me too, you were so interested and eager to know my region. Take good care and I hope to see you again !

We had a wonderful day with Valerie. She was knowledgeable and fun but also gave us space and time to "take in" in experience. She brought us to a wonderful local fish restaurant for lunch which was so amazing. The tour went longer than it was suppose to but she didn't seem to mind. It was the highlight of our trip to normandie. Would highly recommend Valerie.

Valerie is a charming young woman who knows her stuff. She even had a binder with her to augment the tour and answers any questions you may have. Tour is quite extensive and emotionally quite hard, but the historical significance of the D-Day Invasion that changed world history is SO important. Before the tour I had no concept of the magnitude of this amazing Allied invasion. After the tour my head was spinning after seeing the enormity of it and the sacrifices of all young men and women who took part.

We had a wonderful day with Valérie. We were staying in Paris so she assisted us with train reservations and then picked us up at the station. We enjoyed lunch at Mont Saint-Michel, and she really went at our pace while making our way to the top. When we got to the chapel, she was so thorough in explaining the history of the area and buildings. Other tours were passing us by, and we couldn't help but think of all they were missing. After our tour we drove along the coast to Saint-Malo. A wonderful day.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Valerie to Mt. St. Michel. She was extremely knowledgeable and provided great insight for us on the history and culture. She is not only professional but also warm and personable. Thanks for a wonderful day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, Leonard, for this lovely feedback. It was also a great pleasure to meet the four of you. You'll be welcome back in Normandy any time !

Knowledgeable, pleasant & speaks excellent English. Trip was customized to meet our needs: special vehicle for us, provided a car seat for baby, pace to meet our needs; researched areas that were of specific interest to us. Kept in communication with us regularly before we booked the trip & after we booked. Purchased tickets ahead so we didn't spend much time in line & knew back routes that were less crowded. Wonderful way to kick off our family vacation. Highly recommend & wish more guides were like her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jennifer, Many thanks for this lovely comment. I really had a nice day with your family and I was so pride to guide such a small and cute baby. You're a brilliant mother ! Have a nice end of summer. Valérie

I loved Valerie! She showed great patience form the very start, since our ship was late with its' debarkation, almost two hours! When I finally came to the pier from the tender, there she was smiling. Valerie had a great sense of the history of Mont St. Michael, and its' environs. She was a good driver and we covered a lot of ground. I never felt rushed and she took her time to make sure my experience was thorough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan ! Thanks a lot for this very encouraging review ! I sincerely had a great time with you and your father. I do hope that you're doing well back in the US and that you can get some rest after this long and tiring journey. Cheers, Valérie
